Nightmare

JVJ had a nightmare last night. All of a sudden, I heard him screaming, and I had to wake him up. The strange thing is that he dreamed of losing a passport, and he never loses anything. I’m the ’loser’ of the family; if my head weren’t attached, I’d be asking where it was.

Today was a day of watching 90 Day Fiance and watching the LA Clippers lose in the basketball playoffs. Please do not get used to me talking about sports, because I will not be that person. As you know, I much prefer theater. I only watch sports when forced.

lunch

I was playing around on Instagram; you should follow me @selfmadediabetic. I saw a picture of cucumbers with tuna salad, so I decided that I would make them for lunch since I had everything. Not going to lie; I was concerned that last night’s dinner might have caused a spike in my sugar. After doing some research, I don’t think it did but wanted to eat something light.

dinner

Tonight I made salmon; I used a herb seasoning as well as a garlic parmesan seasoning. My favorite seasoning comes from a company called Kinders. I use them frequently. I also grilled some small peppers and air fried some Brussel sprouts. It was yummy!

blood sugar

I decided to try a different tactic this morning and not take my blood sugar until later in the morning, right when I was thinking about eating. I waited until 11:49 am, and it was 176mg. I figured that was too high to be putting food in my body, so I waited until 2:30 pm and retook it; it was 138mg. About 1:30 pm or so, I decided that I would try to add some lemon to my water cause I was bored with it. I did a little bit of research and read that, potentially, lemon water can help stabilize or lower your blood sugar. I drank lemon water for the rest of the day. And, my sugar was 132 when I retook it before dinner. Today’s blood sugar was MUCH better than yesterday.

goal

Today was a little bit of a struggle with the water. I just finished drinking it, and it’s 8 pm. I’m hoping that it doesn’t make me have to use the restroom multiple times tonight.

gratitude

I’m grateful for figuring out the right combination of what to eat and when. And, for a lower blood sugar average today.
